Alaska in April is Firing!
Alaska is FIRING. Up here in the Chugach mountains at Thompson Pass, we are IN IT. In that sweet month with little to no wind and a healthy dose of high pressure. That transition time where the spring isothermal cycle begins to warm, consolidate and stabilize the snowpack, yet simultaneously holds cold pow on northerly aspects. In April, the days are long and the nights are short as sunset pushes 10pm. For any avid skier or snowboarder, riding Alaska is likely on your bucket list. So when it feels like the season at your home resort is coming to an end, “Burn camp! Ride north!”
